The Other 98% has created this ad that sounds as though it will air nationally next week. It is meant to point out the absurdity of giving EXXON $10B in taxpayer subsidies while climate change is making itself felt. It also helps that this is circulating during the “fiscal cliff” BS — if John Boehner is looking for cuts to save money, here is one to start with.
“In the immediate wake of the election, Republicans felt so stunned — in no small part because they had deluded themselves into expecting victory — that it seemed momentarily possible that the party’s long march to the right may halt or even reverse. But the future of the party is already taking shape, and that future will be, in some form or fashion, a conservative reaction against the Republican leadership that has sold them out. The smarter Republicans have already shaken off the trauma of electoral defeat and begun positioning themselves to capitalize.”
4. “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” – U2 (1987)
There are tons of great covers on that ’87 fundraiser for the Special Olympics, but this one really holds up. Phil Spector meets U2 – what’s not to like?
The banter is crazy 1970’s TV special writing, but the beauty of version rescues an otherwise insipid song.
Come inside for the final 2….
Did you know that area establishments book up early on December weekends? Who knew?
I’m really sorry about this change of plan, and I take full responsibility for the mix up. We are moving the Extravaganza to Timothy’s on the Riverfront. Same date, same time.
In keeping with tradition, please bring food for the Food Bank of Delaware. We will be collecting the goodies and necessities and then delivering them the Food Bank. Let’s make someone’s season bright!
Date: Friday, December 14th
Place: Timothy’s (Riverfront)
…Republicans have to be the most gullible suckers to ever walk the face of the earth.
According to FEC data released December 6, Dick Morris’ Super PAC for America paid conservative news outlet Newsmax Media roughly $1.7 million for “fundraising” in October and November. A significant portion of the super PAC’s money likely went to renting Morris’ own email list, which is operated by Newsmax Media.
A Media Matters review found that in the month before the election, Morris sent at least 21 emails to his mailing list featuring fundraising pitches that were “paid for by Super PAC for America.” Super PAC also “paid for” at least 25 emails to Newsmax.com’s main email list during the same period.
Separating gullible GOP dupes from their money was taken to new heights this year.
